The Hartnell family has sold the Queen Victoria Hotel and Suites in downtown Victoria to Concert Properties.

Tony Hartnell, who owns the hotel with siblings Roxanna, Justin, and Cecilia, said although the hotel was not actively listed, the family had decided to sell if a certain amount was offered. Concert Properties came forward with an offer. The sale price was not released.

Although many hotels are “flagged” by being associated with a well-known brand, the Queen Victoria has always been independent since it was built in 1965.

GREGORY HARTNELL: ‘What does Carole James have to say about these notorious meal expenses claims?’

Published July 21, 2010 by goyodelarosa

Re: “NDP joins Chong at table,” editorial, and “Nervous New Democrats back Chong,” July 17.

“Bon appetit!” seems to be the stock answer of many local politicians when it comes to their own “healthy living.”

We now know that at least three New Democratic Party members of the legislature see no problem with the outrageous $5,921 meal expenses claims for 2009 of B. C. Liberal Healthy Living Minister Ida Chong.

These NDP MLAs would appear to prefer not to have to disclose their meal expenses claims to the scrutiny of the taxpaying public.

This is all wonderfully good news for those who, like me, distrust both parties.

What voters in British Columbia and Victoria Beacon Hill really want to know is this: What does the leader of the Opposition, New Democratic Party Leader Carole James, have to say about these notorious meal-expense claims and the shameful secrecy that keeps this information pertaining to the spending habits of members of the legislature from the public?
